Saying It with Less

The camera stalked the scene and captured it forever.

          The sun dropped piles of cats across the porch.

The blossom opened its petals and offered my nose a hug.

     The hands of the clock gestured a warning of the passing of time.

The novel wrapped its pages around me and pulled me into the plot.

                         So which catches your imagination?
